A trail down the western bluffs of Mines of Spain State Park with interesting terrain and foliage.

Features Fall Colors · River/Creek

Description

From the intersection of the Lead Mine Trail, the Mesquakie Trail runs through the forests of the Mines of Spain bluffs through the Granger Creek valley and along Catfish Creek to meet up with the Calicite Trail. Quiet and forested, this trail is a nice, peaceful connector between the western and eastern sections of the park.
